Bio

Spit Jones a.k.a Reudel Christopher was born on the island of St. Kitts. His mother and he moved to Boston a couple short years after he was born. He was raised in a very Christian household in Dorchester. Spit’s mother, who raised him on "good music" like classical music and singers like Frank Sinatra and Stevie Wonder, posted scriptures around the house to familiarize him and his younger sister, Therez, with the word of God.

Spit developed his sense of humor and quick wit in the Boston Public School system. Just about everyday Spit would get picked on for wearing "Bo-Bo’s" and hand-me-downs. Spit had to learn how to take a joke, laugh at himself and shoot jokes right back. He’s one of the last people you want to offend seeing that he has mastered the art of hurting your feelings without cussing or talking about yo mama. School is also where Spit learned about hip-hop, and around 1996-97 he started spittin’. Around that time is when MC’s like DMX, Ma$e, Biggie Smalls, Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes and Canibus started making noise in the hip-hop game. He started carrying a notebook and challenging friends to write-offs in his notebooks. It didn’t really matter where he was, school, the bus, home or church (where he says some of his sickest sixteens were kicked).

Around the age of 17, Spit became serious about God after joining a group full of youth that was on fire for Christ called Michael Payne & Redeemed Praise. The experiences he gained from the time he was on the choir will stick with him forever. During his season with the choir, he met other Christians his age that shared his love for God and music. And the whole time, Spit took in everything that he could retain in his mind, heart and soul. In September of 2005, after the recording a track with Disciple for his Day 3 album, he made a proposal for Spit to join the group, Matthew 5. Spit went home and prayed and came with the answer the next day, "yeah yo, I’ll be down".

In January of 2006, Alvin Lewis Jr., the Founder and President of Focus Entertainment Group, booked Spit for a show in Brooklyn, where everything changed for the better for the artist. After a dynamic performance, heavy but positive feedback from the crowd, and talking to some of the ministers for encouragement, Alvin saw it fit to give Spit Jones the opportunity to be both a member of Matthew 5, a member of Fire Man Productions and be a solo artist.
